President Joe Biden and his administration unveiled Thursday a series of new enforcement measures meant to curb the flow of migrants attempting to reach the U.S.-Mexico border, and in preparation for the end of Title 42, a public health rule that has allowed U.S. border officials to turn away thousands of migrants at the border.

The new measures announced Thursday expand the use of Title 42 while it remains in place, allowing the U.S. government to immediately expel migrants from Cuba, Haiti and Nicaragua back to Mexico.

At the same time, the U.S. will establish a parole program for migrants from these countries that will allow some to enter the U.S. legally. The parole program is modeled after an earlier version targeting Venezuelan migrants.

“Currently, these four countries account for most of the people traveling into Mexico to start a new life by getting to the American border and trying to cross.
